In: Springer eBooksSummary: The book presents a novel socio-economic approach to analysing the - ergy system and energy consumption in India from a household persp- tive. In doing so, it views households as the ultimate end-consumers and estimates and analyses the direct and indirect energy requirements of household consumption, both at an aggregate national level as well as at a disaggregate household level. In addition, the work incorporates two c- cial aspects often ignored by many energy studies that are characteristic of most developing countries, namely the importance of non-commercial sources of biomass energy in the energy systems of these countries, and the enormous diversity and inequity in the patterns of energy access and use across households with different lifestyles and levels of well being. This work was initiated as part of my Ph.D. thesis at the Centre for - ergy Policy and Economics (CEPE) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Te- nology in Z urich (ETHZ ). The thesis was completed at the end of 2002.
